Aloha Tiki Tribe!
Getting ready for the big Body Glove 60th Anniversary Party (featuring the Body Glove SEA-CREATURE!) this October 24th & 25th, right here in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii -

Today we were giving the "GO AHEAD" to the tee shirt folks.

Half of the shirts are gonna be this cool "Big Island Tie-Dye" style -

The Body Glove 60th Anniversary logo on the front and a Black & White version of the Body Glove Sea Creature on the back -

came out looking even better than we hoped for! Can't be here to buy one, but still want one?

Special pre-event sale prices at
info@tikishark.com -
I think they're gonna' go for a special limited time (lets get the ball rollin') price of $20 if you pre-order NOW (plus $5 S&H), and $30 at the Event. Supplies are limited.... My agent already thinking we didn't order enough from the folks asking for shirts (!) Sheesh - these things are so hard to gage, ya know? You don't want to have too many, and get stuck, but you want enough for every one who wants pone... guess we didn't know that his many people woulds want one! Oh well, order now and make sure to get yours. Big MAHALO to everyone asking, and thanks so much for all the support and ALOHA!
ALOHA!

Yeah he is amazing live - I seen him a few times now at the Mai Tai Festival at the Royal Kona. He plays a wide range of ROCK. Rocking the house with his own "Wild Hawaiian" rock, he does a lot more. Enjoyed every performance... he got the place in tears with "somewhere over the rain bow", and he blew everyone one away with "Stair Way to Heaven" - with Mac Fleetwood sitting in on Drums.... Dig IT!

Aloha Tiki Tribe!

On October 24th & 25th, 2013, here in Kailua-Kona Hawaii, Body Glove is celebrating it's 60 year Anniversary as
one of America's best known Surf Brands. As part of that, I got together with Body Glove and Tiki-Farm and I designed a set of Tiki-Mugs.

(Me, and Body Glove owner Bill Meistrell, and his Tikis, and new Tiki-Mugs)


"The Body Glove Tiki-Mug Set". The first, and only, tiki-mugs this world famous Surf Brand has ever made in 60 years of surf history.
Kinda hard to believe for a big surf brand, but there ya' go.

In this set you get 3 monster mugs!:

(and when I say MONSTER I really do mean there is a MONSTER involved here!)


"The Body Glove 60th year Anniversary Tiki-Mug". Emblazoned with the surfing motto "Protect the Core"
.. .meaning the core of the sport of Kings: a good sport, with good sportsmanship, and real surfing ideals
from a beach community based surf brand, not corporation / wall street slogans, but real beach livin' & loving' ALOHA."


"The 'Shark-Tiki' Body Glove Tiki-Mug" - the mythic Mug of a Tiki dedicated to a Shark-God who watches over wayward surfers.
It's two aumakua Shark-spirits swim around it's base.


"The Body Glove Sea-Creature Tiki-Mug". Lurking in the tropical jungles of a remote, unknown island caressed with perfect waves,
this sea-beastie doesn't like sharing his shore, and gives a menacing new meaning to the old warning: "Locals Only!" He's the newest,
and only, sea-monster spawned from a 1st place winning Surf Film: Body Glove's "The Disappearance".


Discover The Body Glove Sea-Creature in Greg Browning's 1st place Trans World Surf film festival winner -
- this 7 minute feature: "The Disappearance":
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YH7i3d0VJ1A


PRE-ORDER the limited-edition Tiki-Mugs these come with autographs of the local Artist who designed the Mugs (me),
and Meistrell family members (the owners of the Body Glove Surf Brand for 3 generations.), and were here in Kona
for the Body Glove party with Mayor Billy Kenoi (Mayor of the Big Island of Hawaii) I'm not kidding!, a REAL-DEAL
Blessing from a Hawaiian Kahu akua, still, I'm not kidding!, a free concert (maybe Henry Kapono, but, if Henry has
touring commitments, I am pushing to have Tiki-culture famous just turned 90-years-young vibraphone player
Sean Wilkinson! Still, not kidding!, Take a spin on the "Body Glove Hawaii Wheel-of-Prizes" and WIN BIG when you
buy a Tiki-Mug! Meet the President of Body Glove, Meet the Body Glove SEA-CREATURE and get a Photo with him!
join in a Live Radio show from the party on LAVA FM! ..and get your Tiki Mugs sharpie-marker signed by as many
of these special people as you can, as well as your BG Sea-Creature Beach Towel, and Creature Tee, and Sea-Creature
Art Print... we are overwhelmed at all the ALOHA the Big Island is showing us at this event! (P.S. the Hawaii governor's
office called my Art Agent with more news about yet another very special "happening" at the Event, but it's too soon to
talk about THAT) , ...and we'll have Body glove 60th Anniversary cake, and of course, Exotic Tropical DRINKS! Per hhaps one named "The Kona Kreature served in a tall frosty Creature Tiki-Mug!
(And, on a more sober note, money from this event is going to local Big Island Charity as well. Spreading ALOHA!)
...And this all takes place at the fabulous open-air Don's Mai-Tai Bar in the lobby of the Royal Kona Resort, right on
the Kona Bay at Sunset!, Then the Wyland Kona Oceanfront Gallery on night 2!


All these mugs are for pre-order purchase from jillw@wylanbigisland.com at the Wyland Kona Oceanfront Gallery, my home gallery here in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Mahalo Tiki will also have some of these mugs that have all this Big Island mojo and celeb autographs and ALOHA...

Now, these are obviously special event mugs, signed, blessed, defaced with sharpie markers, and all that...but I didn't want to make Tiki-Mugs that would only be sold to people who had the $ to come all the way to Hawaii for this once -in-a-lifetime event.

This is all fantastic, beyond anything we dreamed of happening, but... what about the tiki tribe members livin' somewhere on the mainland, or Canada, or France, on a budget?

What? they don't get the chance to have a Tiki-Mug? I didn't want that. Never was my intension. Coming here would cost $. The special autographjed Mugs are being sold by a Art Gallery and are at Art Gallery prices. Honestly, I didn't set out to make Tiki-Mugs the average collector could not afford.

Once, back in the 80's, a very special person - a personal mentor; British writer, film maker, and artist, Clive Barker told me "Art should be for everyone, not just the rich" ...and that stuck with me.

So, after the Huge Body Glove Anniversary Event... we are gonna offer some of the Tiki-Mugs, (with no special autographs, or Big Island Mayor mojo, or Hawaiian blessings, or drunken sharpie scrawls, or any of that) Just the beautiful Tiki-Mugs, up for sale on-line - for as long as supplies last. I cannot say exactly how many, but this gives everyone at least a chance to get one or a whole set for their collection, even if they can't afford a trip to Hawaii.

REALLY, I would LOVE to get a Signed Tiki-Mug to every single person who wants one, - I don't think that is in my power. But, this is with-out us going bankrupt (I think).

So....

After October 25th, while supplies last, you can order unsigned mugs on line at http://www.tikifarm.com
or
http://www.mahalotiki.com.

I hope that helps the tiki-tribe members who were starting to feel real left out... not feel so left out.

Big, BIG, Aloha and mahalo for all your support!

Aloha Tiki Tribe,
My Art-Agent/partner, Abbas, and I were over at the Royal Kona Resort talking about the last few (endless details!) in the HUGE Body Glove Tiki-Mug / 60th Anniversary party we are throwing... October 24th next month! In the back offices I saw THESE Tikis! They are being replaced, or moved, or something, from one place in the resort to another.

Well, I'm sorry to say I DID cause a scene, and I wouldn't let go of the tikis, ...until poor Abbas had to pry my hands off and apologize to the manager of Food & Beverage Services at the Royal Kona Resort as he led me (crying "Mine! Mine!" ) out of the office. I think maybe I'm working too hard. Sorry, Abbas, & Jeff, - thanks for all your understanding and Aloha
BP~

Aloha Tiki Tribe!
So the folks, the execs, the owners, the whole team, at Body Glove Headquarters in Redondo Beach got their "Creature Tees" for the Kona Body Glove Anniversary / Tiki Mug release party this October 24th and 25th!

The President of Body Glove, and the family who owns Body Glove, (the 2nd and 3rd generation) are also coming to Kona for the event! - They'll be there to sign posters, prints, tees, tiki-mugs, get photos ...etc...

Well, guess, They all really liked the Creature TEES -

The front of the Creature TEE has the BODY GLOVE 60 YEAR logo


And the back of the Creature TEE has the Sea Creature and tbe Tikis.... and like dat.

Ah...It's so nice working with the biggest, oldest, Surf Brand around. They are so professional.
Anyways...get your Creature TEES at the event, or from
www.mahalotiki.com or from info@tikishark.com
